Russia’s Northern Fleet holds tactical exercises simulating battle on remote arctic New Siberian Islands

Hmmm ...

The New Siberian Islands are on the same longitude as the opening, and not far below it.


@deandddd , I think by making this geopolitical move , Russia is trying to give notice of their stated claim on the highly strategic Northern Sea Route (NSR) , that cuts right across the North Polar region .



Yes, of course.

But I think that they are especially claiming that region in order to protect the opening.

Keep off the grass!
